Editing the record in EndNote will not stop the journal appearing with the wrong capitalisation in your Word document. This is because EndNote remembers the capitalisation of journal names in the Journals Term List.  You will need to edit the Journals Term List before the journal name will display correctly in your Word document.

To edit the Journals Term Lists:

EndNote 20 & 21

  • EndNote > Library menu > Open Term Lists > Journal Terms List 
  • Locate the journal name to edit by typing the title 
  • Highlight the journal name > Edit Term... 
  • Edit the journal name in the top box (Full Journal)
  • Click OK Close the Term list window

Endnote X9 and earlier versions of EndNote

  • EndNote > Tools menu > Open Term Lists > Journal Terms List 
  • Locate the journal name to edit by typing the title 
  • Highlight the journal name > Edit Term... 
  • Edit the journal name in the top box (Full Journal)
  • Click OK Close the Term list window

Once you have completed the changes to the Journals Terms lists in EndNote, update your reference list and citations in your Word document to reflect the changes.

  • Word > EndNote tab  
  • Click Update Citations and Bibliography in the ribbon.
